Crispy Lotus Root and Arrowhead ChipsWe're all familiar with classic potato chips which are popular all over the globe. Today, we're going to make chips, but we're going to use lotus root and arrowhead tuber for the same. The latter vegetable is generally used in China though you may find it in superstores. In case, it is not available in your locality, replace it with potatoes. I've kept it simple leaving the seasoning part for you. Use canola or peanut oil for deep frying these chips. You can store these chips for a day or two in an airtight container. Serve them with seasoned whipped cream. While frying these chips, do take care as the lotus root wedge may pop up if the oil is too hot. Let's quickly fry these crispy, easy-to-make and delicious chips.
